Death came suddenly to Captain James R. Elliott , 61, of 144 Lynn Drive, Brentwood, as he was on an outing last Friday with his wife in Stockton.
He was stricken by an apparent heart attack as he was opening the trunk of his car. Taken to the nearby Naval Dispensary immediately, he was pronounced dead. Funeral services were held yesterday in the Brentwood Church of Jesus Christ, Latter Day Saints with Bishop Floyd Pedersen officiating. Arrangements were made through the Higgins Chapel in Antioch.
Graveside rites were conducted at the Union Cemetery by military personnel from the Presidio in San Francisco. A native of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Captain Elliott had made his home in Brentwood since last year.
A member of the Officer's Club of Travis AFB, he had joined the U.S. Army many years ago, and served in World War II, as well as the Korean War. He had been attached to the Infantry and Military Police Divisions.
When he returned from the Army he became Supervisor of the Security Department at the Du Pont plant in Antioch 11 years ago.

Jr. of Alaska; five daughters, Mrs. Charlotte Treat, Brentwood; Mrs. Bonnie Nickels, Vallejo; Mrs. Carolyn Botts, Stockton; Mrs. Sharon Madison, Portland, Oregon; and Mrs. Johnnie Hurst of Norfolk, Virginia.
